Mr O'Brien's plans for the next
four years included maintaining cur-
rent infrastructure and building new
infrastructure, overseeing Kapunda's
new retirement village and new bowl-

ing the Gawler Water Reuse Project.

stream for council," he said.

Dutton Ward provided the most
interesting result, with Deane Rohr-

Bobridge Track changes
GAWLER Council has refocused its
priorities on the Jack Bobridge Track
project, planning to double its funding
and renegotiate with the State Govern-
ment to implement a different connec-
tion route to its urban rivers path.
Council had originally planned to com-
plete a connection from the end of the ur-
ban rivers path, which currently stops at
Dead Man's Pass on Mahoney Street, to
But it will now focus its funding and pri-
orities on an alternative route that starts on
Sunnydale Drive and travels along Lyndoch
Road before crossing over Cheek Avenue
and connecting with paths at Clonlea Park
via various urban roads.
Council made the decision at its Octo-
ber meeting last month and will double its
funding from $50,000 to $100,000 and
renegotiate with the State Government to
construct the alternative route as a priority.
The extra $50,000 will be provided via
council's Sundry Projects Fund.
Gawler Council will also continue dis-
cussions with the Barossa Council seeking
its commitment to construct the portion
of the bicycle/walking path located within
Barossa's council boundary area.
The track's completion was officially
marked in May with a ribbon-cutting cere-
mony, however the 27-kilometre-long path
ends short of Gawler, a link that was pro-
moted at the project's inception.
Starting in Tanunda, it ends on Ann
Milroy Lane, Kalbeeba, as opposed to the
Gawler Council boundary line, further west
on Calton Road.
Gawler Council chief executive Henry
Inat said the missing link that would con-
nect the track to Gawler's boundary line was
the Barossa Council's responsibility.
"In order to connect these paths to the
Jack Bobridge Track, a connection is need-
ed from Sunnydale Avenue to Ann Milroy
Lane, where the track currently ends," he
"As this section is part of Barossa's council
area, discussions are being held with Barossa
in order to complete this connection."
Barossa Council's work director Peter Bice
said it was difficult to know when Barossa
would complete the small section of the
track located in its area, but both councils
were "discussing different options regarding
